With the beginning of a massive bloc war down south, the CFC alliances who were not ordered South began a new campaign in the Drone Lands.
Fidelas Constans began hitting Etherium Reach
Gentlemen's Agreement were assigned The Kalevala Expanse
Circle-Of-Two were assigned Perrigen Falls
Prior to the redeployment of Insidious Empire [EMP] the three alliances were snatching up handfuls of systems that lacked IHUBs, and even some that had them. Anyways, EMP quickly redeployed back to the North in search of fights and the chance to cool down after some brutal fighting on the Providence Deployment and Curse Deployment. The first goal was to challenge the CFC alliances in order of the threat that they posed to us. Much to our disappointment, it hasnt quite panned out that way. Anyways, we immediately began contesting timers created by the GENTS and even began dropping our own SBU's.
Early in the war GENTS showed their stuff when their CERB fleet, wrecked our brutix fleet through and accidental warp to .
However, the victory was short lived when just 3 days later Insidious Empire, who was well outnumbered, fought the combined forces of CO2, FCON and GENTs in XTJ-5Q.
The defeat which was not even 24 hours old, had salt poured on it after FCON's welp in WPV-JN. An EMP Dominix fleet baited them into a fight which was followed soon after by EMP Slowcat fleet, and NC/PL Slowcat Fleet.
At this point progress in the Kalevala Expanse had all but been erased. We began turning our focus farther North while our allies began erasing the progress made by FCON. EMP faced off with CO2 in an interesting fight Domis, versus triple plated, passive targeting Typhoons. Which turned out to be pretty dangerous until we decided enough was enough and brought the slowcats in. http://insidiousempire.eve-kill.net/...ll_id=20693926
Anyways, with the collapse of the GENTS war effort we decided it was about time to go and attempt to spur a fight through the reinforcement of P-E9GN which brought us a decent fight though we screwed up when dropping the hammer on the aggressed GENTs carriers because our bubbler failed to bubble them as the PL supers came on field a bunch that were not pointed jumped out.
And that is where we find ourselves today, progress is being made by the defenders and the offenders often find their seige fleet being pushed off by 10 - 20 interceptors which doesn't allow them to swamp the defenders with timers.
Here's a random video of a gank that occured today. We, dirty blobbers were notified of a triaged carrier on a gate. I quickly gathered my nerds together and yeah. STOP WARPING CARRIERS TO GATES. Also, who would have figured that SDing caught capitals is still a thing...
